of the last few weeks favor mr. romney. the question is, what will interrupt that trend if anything? who knows? >> the question is, andrew sullivan, has the trend already been interrupted? some signs that romney's momentum peaked last week. ohio poll actually stopped polling tuesday night. >> for the last three weeks, the swing state polls haven't changed. they were the same three weeks ago. the bumps that obama got from the second debate has stabilized. unless you know you're right, unless this abc news poll in ohio, which to me is really stark news. >> you mean the ohio poll. >> that changes the equation. the last three weeks, look at all of the swing state polls, everything in them, it's been the same race. for three weeks. >> nicolle wallace, that first debate clearly changed the narrative of this race. >> it served as a light coming on. casting mitt romney in a rather durable way. i agree that the polls in ohio is really the only one that matters. i don't buy that there's a path without ohio for romney. so, what they're pointing to this morning, what does suggest something that may be des

[applause] i have a favorite verse in one of our 2345rb8 hems, america the beautiful. in that hem him we talk about the mountains majesty and all the characters of our land but there is a verse that touches me more deeply that says heroes proved in liberating strife who more than self-their country love and mercy more than life. what our veterans and members of the armed forces raise your hand so we can recognize you? [applause] thank you. it is part of the american national character to live for things bigger than yourself. some do that in extraordinary ways, invisible ways, other do it in meaningful ways in their lives and family's life. my sister is a hero to me
, their flag, in perfect condition. and he said, that's it at the end of the table next to mr. romney. i grabbed that flag and held it out, and it was as if the electricity was running through my arm and i thought about all of the men and women in our space program who put themselves in danger's path out of a desire for learning, for us. this is the american way. think of our servicemen and women who put themselves in harm's way for freedom. i have not seen that flag in 15 or 20 years or that scoutmaster but monument, colorado, is not that far from here. would you please welcome that scoutmaster from monument, colorado? [applause] >> thank you. >> thank you. now, did i get that story right? >> you did, sir. >> that is a great flag, representing the greatest nation in the history of the earth. thank you. thank you. isn't that something? i see a troup of scouts here. thanks, young men, for your service in the community. it is in the american candidate, this idea -- the american spirit, this idea of giving to others. my sister is one of my life heroes. she is in her 70's now. she has 8 chil
. meanwhile the obama camp has released a new ad taking aim at mr. romney's economic plan. >> in here it's just you. no ads, no debates, just you. so think about this. mitt romney's plan rolls back regulations on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare voucherized. >> president obama also talking about avoiding the fiscal cliff which would trigger tax hikes and spending cuts two short months from now. he says he wants to work with congressional republicans on it. >> i've said to folks, i'll go to capitol hill. i'll wash john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconnell's dog. i'll do whatever is required to get this done. >> president obama heads to new hampshire a bit later today for a stop in nashua. vice president biden is scheduled to hold an event in lynch burg, virginia. >>> now we go to ohio where nbc's ron mott is on that bus tour with paul ryan. hello to you ron again. where are you in the many stops on that bus tour today? >> reporter: hey there, alex. i've got to get my back stretched out. we've got five stops as you mentioned here today. three more tomorrow. eight in total.
is following mr. romney along the trail. so jim, you heard him there. he did -- he went through his five-point plan again, not giving a whole lot of specifics but certainly trying to lay out what he would do if indeed he is elected come tuesday. >> that's right, randi. you know, at this point, it's hard to get all of those specifics out there. i mean, he has been hammering the five-point plan repeatedly for the last couple of weeks of this campaign, and i think by now his supporters probably know what those specifics are, but you're right. i mean, he is laying out his agenda for his first 100 days in office, you might say, but randi, i have to tell you, one of the things we picked up here on the campaign trail in the last couple of days, mitt romney has really gone after what he believes is a weakness in the obama campaign strategy. the romney campaign believes that president obama, and they are making the case is, trying to make the case, that president obama has sort of forgotten his mandate for when he came into office, that he was supposed to bring about this era of post-partisanship
and inside was our flag in perfect condition. sits next on the flagpole next to mr. romney, and electricity ran through my arms because i thought about men and women of our space program who have lived their lives for something bigger than americ themselves. think of women who have served in the arm for first, their willingness to walk in the way of danger for us, for liberty. it is part of the american character to give of oneself to something bigger than oneself. it is who we are. is true in the patriots of the space program, the patrons who serve in our military, who served in the homes. my sister is in her 70's. she has eight children. they are all married with kids of their own, except the untest. the youngest, jeffrey, was born with down's syndrome. he is about 43 right now. her husband pass away a few years ago. she is at home with jeffrey, and she has devoted the last 43 years of her life to making sure that jeffrey's life is as full and complete as can possibly be. and he wrote to me. -- a hero to me. i think of the single moms across the country who are scrimping and saving right
was calling in to say that mr. romney wants for nothing and he is just running for president for power. if he is elected, we will go back to being barefoot and pregnant and the states or as they're going right now are going to start becoming small countries if power is given to them. and people in the south will see the rise again of us moving into the civil war type situation. host: before we talk to you we were talking about gender issues. do social issues whatever factor into voting there in wisconsin? guest: sure, like anywhere else they go into i think the way people line up in both parties and that's -- i don't know if it's any more true or less true in wisconsin than any other state host: california. our independent line. craig, you're on. caller: is this for me now? host: you're on, sir. go ahead. caller: i wasn't sure because you didn't list it properly. host: we're running out of time. go ahead. caller: i just want to mention because i think there's a problem with semantics in this country. and what i mean by that is everybody looks at romney from the standpoint as this man as a bui

first lady of the united states, mrs. ann romney. >> oh. oh, my gosh, i am actually so touched, i am listening to the extraordinary woman. to be able to stand next to somebody as barbara know that she and jack represents so much of what we love about america, they are such wonderful examples to us, it brought tears to my eyes as i was backstage thinking of how amazing it is -- i have to pinch myself -- to think that anybody like that would even know who we are, because i have admired jack nicklaus all my life and admired his way of living, his way of achieving, as great as in so many areas outside of the golf course. i know ohio is their home state, and that this is where so many of you folks know them and love them. as so many americans across the country admire and respect him, i am hubble to be on the stage which so many extraordinary women. i see there are few men. hi. there are a few men out there, too. this is great. jane mentioned we are on the girls bus. i like rolling with the girls. i have had a great time cyndi mccain. she and i have formed such a deep friendship. there ar
than at any time in the last eight months. >> reporter: and that all three of his ohio stops mr. obama went after a romney ad that suggests jeep is moving jobs from buckeye state to china. >> folks that work at the jeep plant have been having to call-up their employers because they are worried. of course it turns out it's not true. the car companies themselves have told governor romney knock it off. knock it off. that's what they said. >> reporter: the obama campaign contends that ad is romney's undoing. it's gotten a lot of attention here most of it negative. both side are working overtime to project confidence in this race but david axelrod took it to another level yesterday contending that obama was so fired up that his speeches were coming directly from his loins. definitely a new one out here on the campaign trail. >> nancy cordes in mentor ohio with the final countdown. thanks nancy. >> from his loins. mitt romney is working equally hard on this last weekend of campaigning. he's dispatched a wave of high-profile surrogates to make his final sales pitch
is somebody who can be trusted. >> reporter: in florida, governor romney criticized the administration's record helping small business. >> sometimes regulators seem to look at businesses like they're the enemy. >> reporter: he never mentioned the president by name. governor jeb bush did. claiming mr. obama is making excuses for his failures. >> it's almost as though the dog ate my home work is the reason why we're going through tough times. >> reporter: early voting reopened in maryland with long lines. >> three hours? >> yeah. it's worth it. >> reporter: in areas where flooding destroyed some polling places, they're considering putting up tents to make sure that residents can vote. more polls have the president up five points in ohio. they say things are so close and such a small lead in virginia and florida, they're calling it a tie. lynn? >> thank you. >>> we mentioned the obama-christie meeting is an extraordinarily coming together of two people that are polar opposites politically. men who have very recently delivered some extremely biting comments about the other. but now putting
barack obama is today. >> bill: mr. pelley low goes in your recent polling we remind everybody you pulled out of west virginia north carolina and virginia. romney is going to take those states. you suspended polling there do you believe that tonight. >> it was based on the head-to-head number. barack obama was leading 48% to 40% in those three states. six weeks ago. then 4 will% 44. now it's 48%, 48%. common denominator barack obama is still stuck at 48%. so, if, in virginia, especially or in bell test get up to where it is is in new hampshire and ohio to 49%, we would certainly take another look and jump back. in it's still stuck at 4%. as incumbent as the known quantity, very difficult to get to 50. when you can't seem to grow beyond that. >> still standing to analysis. in ohio, rasmussen today, has romney up by two. >> i can tell you, we pulled ohio last week. and i looked at the two polls that had obama plus 4. i don't think obama plus four is the right number in ohio and here is why. >> bill: what was your number by the way? >> we had it tied. 47, 47. suffolk listed all the candidate

with mainstream ohio. >> i have a quick question for both of you. mr. mandel, if they send obama to the white house and you to the senate, and to you, sen. brown, of romney carries the state but sends you to washington, what do you take away? >> i believe that mitt romney will be the next president but if president obama is reelected, i will work with them and i will work to move the ball down the field economically for the state and our country. if the voters of the state of ohio go in that direction, they don't want a rubber-stamp, the votes for his party 98% of the time. >> i think if this happens, people sitting back and say, sharon brown -- sherrod brown is his own guy. he fights for his district and i would guess -- it could be a mixed message. but of course i'd work with mitt romney. i can recite a dozen cases we have made this way. >> the coin toss -- i think i got this right, mr. mandel? >> i was inspired to join the marine corps by my grandparents. one of my grandfathers was liberated by allied troops and the other served in the air force. we can debate like this and we can disagree
from ohio. good morning, john. caller: good morning. good morning, mr. ryan. i am calling to ask you if you're familiar with the ballots that are -- they're having trouble with in switching over when they're voting for mitt romney and at the end the check mark is then over on the democratic side? are you familiar with them? there's been a couple of programs of it. one of them is right here in columbus, ohio. where they've had a few, i'm not going to say a gaggle of them but there's been quite a few. but then i heard you earlier on the delphi workers, that you and senator brown was trying to work something out for them. i just watched a program on that where they were interviewing the delphi workers themselves. they said they have no pension. they're not getting any pension. so it's kind of -- this kind of spin sounds like it's coming from you there a little bit. >> congressman ryan? >> well you know. it's a tough situation, i will tell you that, with the delphi salary folks. we have been working on it a long, long time. my former coaches and family members who are in that group, i'm
like mr. brown. >> thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> interesting question to have about fema. reporters throwing questions at governor romney yesterday. they were asking him a number of times -- he wouldn't state -- do you think this is problematic for the governor? >> i don't think so at all. first of all, let me just respond to jen. she just blew off the criticism about benghazi. you listen to her saying in a crisis the president hunkered down in the white house, getting constant briefings, travel is being monitored hour by hour based on circumstances. think back to benghazi. when apparently we had real time video showing this attack and the next day the president goes off to las vegas to raise money, either he didn't know what had happened or he was mistaken or misleading the american people. but it dntd matter enough for him to suspend the campaign. for jen to sit here and say with a straight face that politics is not playing into the president's decisions is just not the case. the president is doing the right thing. no question about it. to say that somehow this is a lof

[applause] let me tell you other words he has not said, "i kept my pro mises." [applause] if you are serious about the future of your country, you can change the future right now. if you are serious about the future of your country, do not put back in office a man who has done what he said he would do and does not made america the country he promised he would make. four days. it is in your hands, ohio. take this country back. let's get this country moving again. god bless you. >> ladies and gentlemen, from the state of new hampshire, senator kelly a. opyote. >> greetings from the live free or die
